My daughter loves this school. The principal takes a personal interest in all of the students and extra curricular activities. The teachers are amazing and so involved with their students and their success. I highly recommend Rialto Middle!

I am a former student of Rialto middle school, and I went all 3 years there. I liked it very much i have memories there that will never be erased, even though they are moved the school to a new campus every time i pass by the old school I feel like I'm about to get teary. Well this school has or had some great teachers and will give students their best at teaching. I couldn't think of a better school to spend my years in and make wonderful memories like I did. Don't get me wrong this school just doesn't make memories, That's not what we go to school for, but it also has a nice friendly staff that teaches well and even some stay after school to help students with Homework,Make-up tests etc. I REALLY loved this school -WADIM

Rialto middle school has a great staff of enthusiastic teachers. With a large number of ELD students there is a major concentration of Language arts skills and math. Student after school activities provide a strong school to home bond. Parent envolvement is a weak area as the majority of parents are working one or two jobs. Parent envolvement in academic maters is very strong with a common feeling of the importance of school. Attendance averages are the highest in the district mirroring the importance of education.
